After waiting his turn behind standouts Chris Diaz and Jovan Young, Alex Salas’ first year as Winters’ quarterback was something of a growing process.
Rushing for 624 yards, passing for 435 and accounting for 16 total touchdowns, the rangy signal caller flashed his athleticism and potential last fall. But bouts of inconsistency limited the Blizzards to 25.5 points per game and a 5-6 overall record.
Now a senior, with a season of starts under his belt, Salas is hoping to turn the lessons he learned as a junior into a breakout 2020 campaign. And his coach, sixth-year Winters mentor Matt McCarty, has every faith in his now veteran quarterback to do just that.
